On a very hot and humid June morning, Miguel Mari, our creative director, Gillian Nadel, photo director, and I took a hard hat tour of The Hari, a new hotel opening in the heart of Wan Chai later this year. At the time, the building was still a raw shell, though we could see the outlines of guest rooms starting to take shape, as well as a restaurant and a fabulous looking terrace where one could imagine gathering for a sundowner in one of Hong Kong’s most thriving neighbourhoods. It’s worth taking a moment to acknowledge the symbolism of seeing a project like The Hari—five years in the making—nearing completion in these deeply unsettling times. For one thing, The Hari is the first hotel brand built from scratch by Aron Harilela,…

M+ PAVILION Shirley Tse: Stakes and Holders Until October 4 M+ is bringing Shirley Tse’s exhibition from the Venice Biennale, where she represented Hong Kong last year, to its exhibition space on the West Kowloon harbourfront. Hong Kong-born, Los Angeles-based Tse has made a career of exploring the limits of materials through sculpture; in this show, she manipulates wood, plastic, metal and more using mechanical and digital technologies. Tse has also created new site-specific installations for the M+ Pavilion. KARIN WEBER GALLERY Of All Things Cute Until August 15 In this show, three Hong Kong artists—Chow Chun-fai, Joey Leung Ka-yin and Rosanna Li—and Japanese artist Daisuke Teshima explore the aesthetic of cuteness.

What do you get when one of Asia’s leading architects decides to launch a book by throwing a party? A guest list stacked with Hong Kong A-listers. To celebrate the release of Crossing Cultures with Design, André Fu hosted a series of intimate champagne receptions in the elegant St Regis hotel—designed by Fu, no less—in the heart of Wan Chai on June 10. “It is a rare occasion to have so many friends and collaborators converge throughout the day. The support that I’ve had is huge,” says Fu. Known for crafting original spaces, Fu has honed a refined aesthetic that mixes the traditions of the East with modern European flair, bridging the gap between cultures. Published by Thames & Hudson, the book took a year and a half to develop and…
